Until fairy recently, women relied on their own ingenuity to concoct, produce, and blend their cosmetics. They used natural herbs from the fields, garden flowers, barks and roots, fruits, berries, and even clays and muds from the earth as beauty aids. Unfortunately, as the world becomes more cluttered, noisy and further retreats from natural and becomes a place for “modern city-dwellers”, woman have to find their way again to their roots, escape the madness, rat-race and find the fresh air and loveliness of the tangled forests, animals & gardens in the world.
Going to the store to buy something readily made is quite easy as well, but synthetic cosmetics with their artificial chemical ingredients, colourings, imitation scents and toxic (even cancerous) additives have brought nothing but disaster to most women's complexions and overall appearance.

“There is no exquisite beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.” --Francis Bacon
'Some people will tell you there is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a chest of tea.' - Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The Deer Woman is said to sometimes be seen as a beautiful woman just off the trail or behind a bush, calling to men to come over. Deer Woman is often said to have all the features of a normal young woman, except her feet which are shaped like deer hooves and her brown deer’s eyes. Men who are lured into her presence often notice too late that she is not a natural woman and are then stomped to death. Other stories and traditions describe the sighting of Deer Woman to be a sign of personal transformation or a warning. Deer Woman is also said to be fond of dancing and will sometimes join a communal dance unnoticed leaving only when the drum beating ceases.”
